About Me

Hello! My name is Malinda and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Idaho. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, career challenges, and preventative care. I have been in the mental health field for approximately 10 years.

My approach to therapy is open and interactive. I believe that every person is valuable and capable of change, and incorporate these beliefs in my counseling relationships. I use a client-centered approach combined with rational emotive behavioral therapy, logo therapy, and values work as needed. I work with my clients to make sure each person gets what they need as an individual rather than assuming that one approach will work for everyone. Additionally, as a Christian in counseling, I believe that the Lord is kind to show up in the counseling relationship and to allow healing in ways that we cannot do on our own. Prayer, scripture, and other faith perspectives are welcome in counseling if you would like them to be, but won't be forced.

It is amazing to me what can happen through the course of counseling and I see it as an honor and a privilege to be a part of the work. I look forward to seeing how I can be helpful to you, too!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Malinda Poe. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Faithful Counseling might be different.
